If to believe on a report published on The New York Times, NYC’s mayor Bill de Blasio, said: “statue will be moved from the southern tip of Broadway to just in front of New York Stock Exchange.”
Mr. de Blasio told the Times, the move is due to safety concerns and pedestrian traffic. De Blasio said, “She (fearless girl) is a potent symbol of the need for change at the highest levels of corporate America.”
There are claims in the media that the charging bull will accompany her to the New York Stock Exchange.
Ever since the catchy statue was installed in front of the bull, Di Modica has opposed this. Di Modica, the man who made “Charging bull” claimed, “fearless girl” has changed the meaning of the bull. “It (charging bull) is not an image of prosperity anymore, but a villainous creature” claimed Di Modica.
The fearless girl is work of famous sculptor, Kristen Visbal; now after a year of the installation of the statue, the officials are worried about the safety hazard it creates. The officials’ the concerns have doubled since a driver killed eight people here several months ago.
Relatively, this point has been the talk of the town from the day; the fearless girl was installed here. A number of people who visit the area, raised alarmingly, hence the change. The statue was placed here in the area temporarily, and after letting it stay here for an extended year, it is time for the figures to move. The official said, “we are worried that crowds around the statutes will be potential targets for a terrorist behind the wheel.” The new location of this beautiful statue is heavily secured and has strict rules for the traffic, which means the officials can relax.
The sculptor of this fearless girl, Kristen Visbal, said, “I am thrilled ‘Fearless girl’ will remain in New York.”
